Suburb Overview

Castlemaine is a small city in Victoria, Australia, in the Goldfields region of Victoria about 120 kilometres northwest by road from Melbourne, and about 40 kilometres from the major provincial centre of Bendigo. It is the administrative and economic centre of the Shire of Mount Alexander. The population at the 2006 Census was 6,797.

It was named by chief goldfield commissioner, Captain W. Wright in honour of his Irish uncle, Viscount Castlemaine.

Castlemaine began as a gold rush boomtown in 1851, it has since become a major regional centre known for its industrial and cultural institutions including the oldest continuously operating theatre in mainland Australia, the Theatre Royal.

The first European settlers named it Forrest Creek and as the population grew it became known as Mount Alexander. The old name is still present in some place names in Victoria including the Shire of Mount Alexander and the former main road leading to it from Melbourne - Mount Alexander Road and several local institutions such the hospital and sports clubs.

In 1854, Chief goldfield commissioner, Captain W. Wright, renamed the settlement to Castlemaine in honour of his Irish uncle, Viscount Castlemaine.

Castlemaine exists on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung people, also known as the Jaara people.

In September 1851, three shepherds and a bullock driver discovered gold in Specimen Gully, about 5 kilometres to the north-east. Within a month the alluvial bed of Forrest Creek was being worked with 8,000 miners on the field by the end of the year and 25,000 by March 1852.

The first Post Office opened as Forrest Creek on 1 March 1852.

The Theatre Royal opened in 1856 to provide entertainment for the gold diggers, with the first performance being provided by the world renowned Lola Montes and her celebrated Spider Dance.

A local government was formed on 23 April 1855 and was later to become the City of Castlemaine.

In 1859, the historic Castlemaine Football Club was established, and recent evidence makes it the second oldest football club in Australia and one of the oldest football clubs in the world.
